Oliver Dickinson has written a scholarly, accessible and up-to-date introduction to the prehistoric civilizations of Greece. The Aegean Bronze Age saw the rise and fall of the Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations. The cultural history of the region emerges through a series of thematic chapters that treat settlement, economy, crafts, exchange and foreign contact, and religion and burial customs. Students and teachers will welcome this book, but it will also provide the ideal companion for amateur archaeologists visiting the Aegean.

Review

"Dickinson's balanced and sensible book fills the need for a general treatment of the Aegean Bronze Age that takes into account new findings and advances in archaeological theory....Dickinson is clear, sound on details, and up on new findings, and he does not display idiosyncracies or rancor, even when discussing hotly debated issues....An absolute must for all libraries--if limited to only one book on the Bronze Age cultures of Greece, it should be this one."
